The date is looming. February 1st. That’s when Chatham County starts their own police department.. again. But the county won’t be at full staff on that day. The question is, what does that mean for the people?? 44 officers. That’s all Chatham County has on staff so far. 51 more are in the system, and could be on staff later next month. But that doesn’t help day one. Chief Jeff Hadley told News 3 he’s not surprised his department is short, and has a message for the citizens who may be worried.
They may be splitting, but the city of Savannah and Chatham County Police Departments may not be done with each other yet. The city received a letter last week from the county asking for “assistance to provide police services to the West Chatham area until the department is up to staff. That’s because News 3 has learned Chatham County only has 44 sworn officers so far, with 51 more still in the “hiring process”.
Should someone who is carrying marijuana end up behind bars? Its a question under debate right here in Savannah, as one Alderman brings his controversial proposal in front of council. Van Johnson says Savannah can get “ahead of the times” not by letting people carrying marijuana get off, but by not locking them up. That’s why he has introduced an ordinance that would hit offenders in the wallet, not hit them with criminal charges.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
